When & Where
Half Pint Horse Foundation
Half Pint Horse Foundation is a Bloomington, MN company bringing miniature horses to cheer up those in need in nursing homes, hospitals and anywhere someone is in need of therapuetic companionship. We are a project of United Charitable Programs, a registered 501(c)3 public charity. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law and help us bring these horses wherever they are needed most.
Our Mission: to promote mental and physical healing, therapy and education through interaction with miniature horses.
Our miniature horses Coal, Cookie and Joey are between 25 and 30 inches tall, so they are great travelers and can walk right into rooms, hallways, elevators etc.
Coal, Cookie and Joey are working on getting certfied as therapy pets through Pet Partners. Pet Partners mission is to improve human health through service and animal therapy.
We believe in the mental and physical healing power of animal therapy and work with nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, the disabled and children's programs to brighten the days of the young and old. See our Reading with Horsepower page for info on our new children's literacy program.
Half Pint Horse Foundation also visits schools, libraries, churches, home schools, daycare centers, summer camps, birthday parties, fundraising events and public appearances.
Our Volunteer Handlers have a minimum of 10 hours of hands on training with the horses before they are allowed to handle a horse on a visit. A trainer accompanies the volunteer handlers on each and every visit.
